Gosh! What a thrill to witness the first ever moment a young osprey takes to the air, hey?
You’ll know if you’ve been watching #FoulshawOsprey cam, that the three youngsters have been flapping & stretching their wings over the past week or so ready for that all important take-off. Their wingspan in adulthood will be around 1.5 metres (that’s about 5 feet), making them one of the largest birds of prey in the UK.
And so far two of the three chicks have fledged. Yipee!
